Normal The Tree Kisser
thetreekisser As you lovely people know, I rescued sweet Maya last week from a high-kill shelter. I've been so grateful for all the enthusiasm and support , but I want to make sure it's understood that we can ALL, regardless of age/home/finances, help prevent some of the tragic deaths suffered by millions of abandoned & forgotten shelter pets every year. If you're interested, I just posted a comprehensive blog at thetreekisser.wordpress.com. The link is also on my FB page. Please take a look and empower yourself to make a difference! 1d

thetreekisser Just stopped in to try some new menu items at @veggiegrill! The BTLA (made with tempeh bacon) was fresh and delicious, and the sweet & spicy Crispy Cauliflower was creative and super impressive. This team just gets better and better at creating cruelty-free cuisine. #noanimalsharmed 2d

thetreekisser Between driving 🚘 to Orange County to house hunt, to the shelter to rescue Maya , and to the desert outside of Vegas to protect the dogs from fireworks, I've been in the car a LOT this week. Time to spoil myself with a massage in hopes of working through these kinks! 2d

thetreekisser I'm SUPER excited that my customized #ecoenclose shipping materials arrived today ! These boxes are 100% recycled and biodegradable. Almost all #thetreekisser orders will now be shipped this way, with the exception of huge or oddly shaped packages. I'm so happy my business is taking another step towards sustainability ! 4d

thetreekisser My post-4th, mildly hungover, catching up on work ensemble. Mismatched patterns & chipped nails . Grateful for the coziness of my @brucehrt tee and the fact that I don't have to leave the house! 6d

thetreekisser Call me crazy but I'm pretty content spending my evening devouring @earthbalance mac 'n cheese poolside with the mutts. We're blasting our most offensive music so families with children will go inside and stop shooting off fireworks that terrify nearby animals . Sorry neighbors, my dogs' safety trumps your dangerous, environmentally destructive traditions. 6d

thetreekisser Foster pup Maya making herself at home . She's having so much fun playing with (and annoying the hell out of) the other pups. I'm so happy for her! #adoptdontshop 7d

thetreekisser I know I've mentioned this a lot but it deserves repeating! More pets are killed in shelters this weekend than any other time of year. Dogs & cats, terrified by fireworks , run away from home and (if they're lucky enough to not be run over) end up in already packed shelters . The shelters have no choice but to euthanize animals that have been there the longest or are less popular (chihuahuas and pit bulls). PLEASE make sure your pets are safe. If you have to leave them, turn on a TV or radio and make sure all potential exists are securely closed. And, if you're feeling extra helpful, please consider fostering a shelter pet or donating to a local rescue group. They'll be busy this weekend trying to save as many lives as possible, and will need funds for shelter fees and vet bills. If you want suggestions for worthy organizations to support or foster for, just let me know! PS: This post is on my FB page as well if you'd like to share with friends & family. fb.com/TreeKisserBlog 7d

thetreekisser Getting special treatment at Panevino ! The restaurant menu is far from entirely vegan, but the manager doesn't eat animals and he loves to create plant-based cuisine! Our meal was exceptional; if you're in Vegas, you must stop in! #noanimalsharmed 1w

thetreekisser Already so in love with this new rescue pup . I can't believe just yesterday she woke up for the 33rd consecutive day in a lonely, concrete floored shelter cage. Please consider fostering or adopting this weekend. Saving a life will be as rewarding for you as it is for them! 1w

thetreekisser Mission accomplished ! This is Maya, formerly known as Nina, who I rescued from the Orange County Animal Shelter today. She is the sweetest thing, I can't believe she was stuck there for over a month! As I mentioned this morning, this weekend is HUGELY dangerous for shelter dogs. Please consider visiting your local shelter to foster or adopt; you'll be rewarded with endless love and the knowledge that you saved a life! 1w
  •   m.i.e.l So glad you stepped forward. From the bottom of my heart .. Thank you 1w
  •   lissetdeleon So, you're the lucky one who adopted her. When I called yesterday to find out more about her, they said she had just been adopted the day before. Thank you for rescuing her. 1w
  •   mrs_gambino_kustoms That's so awesome..thank you 7d
  •   thetreekisser Aw thank you for calling @lissetdeleon! The Orange County shelter is still completely packed with pups in need- if you're looking to save a life there are lots to be saved! 7d
  •   live_laugh_dancer Please post more about how this beautiful dog is doing and what her personality is like I think its amazing what you did. As soon as I turn 18 and can legally adopt and care for animals I will try to, just like you. Keep up with everything, it is super inspiring and kind7d
  •   aberdeenfitness All my animals are rescue animals! Our local mall had a puppy mill pet store and our local shelter was able to shut them down. Now the shelter occupies that space. Its awesome! 6d
  •   paulote great Job. 4d

thetreekisser Remember Nina, the sweet chihuahua I posted the other day? No one has stepped up to rescue her and this is the most deadly weekend of the year for shelters. Thousands of terrified animals run away from home due to fireworks panic, so the shelters are completely packed . Strays are kept on hold for a few days, so animals who have been there a while (like Nina) are first in line to be killed. Sooo, I'm driving up to rescue her (in #thetreekisser "ADOPT" boxy tee, of course)! She will definitely need a forever home, stay tuned for details if you want to adopt her! And PLEASE keep your pets safe this weekend! #adoptdontshop 1w
